Wednesday 27th April 2016 at Blackwell’s Bookshop 7-9pm
Getting used to talking about you and your novel:
Once you book’s been published, how do you talk about it? (and sell it!) Join us as we interview a published author for the Blackwell’s YouTube channel and then . . . it’s your turn! We’ll discuss and mentor you so that you can hone your skills in telling the world why your book is the next must-read. How do you sell yourself on video – how do you cope with the pressure of being articulate when a camera is thrust in your face – how do you sum up, in the most enticing way, what your new novel is about in twenty seconds/one minute/three minutes/five minutes? What about readings to camera? What about recommending books?
We will go through some demonstrations and exercises based on these ideas to help you on your way to becoming a self-promoting (in the best possible way!) star of the screen.
